Happy Medium



 Top: ASOS, Tank top: Michael Stars, Shorts:MINKPINK  Watch: ASOS, Sandals: Forever 21, Hat: Forever 21,

So, clearly, Stanley has been my favorite accessory in recent days. I mean, he goes with everything I wear. 

I'm still taking it easy in the wardrobe department because my time is limited, and the most important thing in my life right now is teaching this boy how to bring his ball back. 

I will say, I've been shopping for more casual wear, and finding a lot of success. Buying basics is something I haven't always been good at. I always want to do trendy and "right now" pieces. When I do buy basics it's usually a black t-shirt, or rinse denim jeans. But lately I've been finding a happy medium between boring basics, and trendy pieces. This shirt, for example, is the perfect go to. It's pretty long when it's not tucked in, so I can totally rock it with some leggings and boots. It's light weight for summer, and perfect for layering in the winter. Totally a score! 

What are your favorite basic pieces? 

XO...
Kellen
